— Upgrading A Vintage Shotgun – Remington 870 Wingmaster

It’s said (by “them”) that everyone should have a shotgun! Well, I agree.  I’ve been looking for the past couple of years.  I was think Semi-Auto but they cost more than I want to spend on a firearm that I’ll have merely for fun.  I’ve thought about new shotguns, but I don’t like most of…

— Drake White — Singing In A VW Bus

If you didn’t know it, I’m digging this musician named Drake White.  He’s come out of no where to sing a couple of really good songs, Making Me Look Good Again, and Grin’in. In this video, he’s singing a song called, The Coast Is Clear (Run With The Bulls).  I don’t know if it’s one…

— Drake White — Great Musician You Haven’t Heard Of… Yet!

Have you ever heard of Drake White?  Yea, that’s what I thought.  I heard him one day while at lunch in one of our amazing Texas saloons.  I stress that, because, I’m not sure what genre he fits within.  I like “Americana” music and I think he probably qualifies.  The themes of some of his…

— The Yellow Rose Of Texas — An Ironic Origin of the Song

You’ve heard the song, The Yellow Rose Of Texas, right?  Have you ever wondered what it was about?  (If you have, you’re probably a Texan).  Regardless of all of the famous singers over the past 100 years that have sang a version of it, what would you say if I told you that that original…

— I Give Up… I Forgive All White People For Slavery (Not That It Matters).

Do I really have to say it?  Are we really living in such crazy times that we have zero perspective?  Well, apparently we are!  You have people seriously claiming that all white people suffer from “White Privilege”.  But the only way “whites” (doesn’t that sound derogatory) don’t suffer of this hence hidden disease, is through…

— How Are Democrats Blaming Republicans For Slaves Being 3/5ths Of A Man?

Every so often I hear a person say something about America’s history…  Usually, it is some angry Democrat reminding those that have the audacity to believe that America is fundamentally, a good country; that in the past, Americans thought black people were 3/5ths of a person.  Now is that fair? No, it’s not quite “fair”. …

— Why I Chose A Gun — A Ted Talk Worth Watching

I happen to be looking at Travel Trailer RV videos on Youtube (as many story’s start nowadays), when I saw an enticing article, “Why I Chose A Gun”.  I noted that it was a Ted Talk.  Looking closer I noted that it was from Amsterdam, and that there was a General speaking with a lovely…

— It IS Time For A Color Blind Government…

It’s time to end this!  Alot of people SAY that we should have a Color Blind “Society”; but well, the irony of it all, is that they don’t really want a color blind society.  Many of the people who claim they want one, always seem to support Affirmative Action and other programs that benefit some,…

— Another Interesting Band — The Dead South

I’ve always been into odd music.  I appreciate the creativity that goes into making a song that sounds like no other.  You’ve heard my thoughts on Trampled By Turtles, and Valerie June.  Well, here’s another interesting band that goes its own way.  Like those others, I’d also call it “American Music”.  It seems like a…

— We’ve Got A New President — And The World Is Still Here.

OK, We recently had Inauguration day 2017.  It went by without a hitch.  The ceremony was great and many of us have lost one of our main reasons to complain, while admittedly, others amongst us now have a new reason to do so…  His first business day arrived and he signed a few Orders to…

— Did The Russians Really Hack The US Election? — Who Do You Trust???

Listen…  Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump.   It’s over!  Trump will be President in 17 days; but instead of accepting the outcome, many Democrats are claiming that the Russians “hacked” the election and therefore the US must take some action against them… Obama responded by kicking out 35 personnel associated with the Russian Diplomatic mission…

We’re Not Electing A New Jesus… Just A President! — Trump Won

‘Some of you people need to chill the hell out!  You’d think we were voting for a new Jesus or something.  Donald Trump is just a guy.  Some of you act like your hopes and dreams are squashed because a new President, that you don’t like,  won the election.  If that’s the case, you have…

— Do You Actually Own Your House — A Quick Thought

After you’ve made all of the payments on your house, you thought you’d enjoy the evidence of your labor.  You’ve paid oodles and oodles of dollars out for the last 15, 25, or 30 years.  You’ve loaded your house up with furniture, your personal goods, and other useless junk, that took a lifetime to collect. …

[After You Read This. Go Read My Results] OK, I’ve always thought that getting my DNA analyzed might be kind of interesting.  I mean, who doesn’t want to know where their “Ancestors,” or at least their “genes” came from?  Would it change your outlook on life, if you learned something significant about where your genes…

— OK, I Concede On Ted Cruz. He Will Not Be President!

Yes, I know.  I thought I was impressive when I predicted that the next President was going to be Ted Cruz.  ‘And I made my prediction 3 years before the election. I saw it with my inner eye like a Indian Shaman!  I explained how brilliant he was, and why he would be a good…

Happy “Texas Independence Day”

Happy March 2nd!  If you’re from, living in, familiar with, or moving to, Texas, you’ll know that today is Texas’ Independence Day.  It was this day in March of 1836 that “Texians” (the non-hispanic residents of the area) let Mexico know, they were declaring their independence.  Mexico would send in its military, and the Texas…

— The Battle Of Blair Mountain — Have you Heard of it?!?!

What If I told you that at one point in Americas history, up to 13,000 people took up arms and fought nearly 3500 police, government officials, government-supported corporations, and military personnel?  And what if I told you that more than a million rounds were exchanged between Americans in that battle over a 3-day period? ‘And…

— The Curious Comparison of The IRS… And ISIS

Now, we all hate the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)! Even the people who work for the IRS… hate the IRS.  But there’s a curious comparison that can be made between the IRS, and the Islamic State Of Iraq and Lavant (ISIL), known as Daesh, and technically different, but colloquially called, “ISIS”.  And sure it may…

— “Magazines” or “Clips” — An Idiots Guide

OK, I thought I’d make this so simple that even a Politician could understand it.  I’m going to explain the difference between a “clip” and a “magazine”.  I’m going to try my best to be non-partisan and just explain it.  I’m not going to point out the fact that “supposedly” smart people like; Harry Reid,…

— Liberty, Freedom, the US Government, and Trans-Fats…

So here we are in 2015.  The US Government, through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has unilaterally decided that they will give (allow) manufacturers three years to remove trans-fats from America’s food.  They’ve unilaterally made the Final Determination! …And some people (those who support big government, or trusts big government’s intentions) are cheering the…

— Where’s Ted Cruz? — He Needs To Find New Advisers (Already)

Alright, I’ve already Predicted Ted Cruz would win the Presidency in 2016. Yes, I predicted it 3 years in advance but apparently, Cruz is getting some bad advice! [Admittedly, I’m beginning to question my prediction of Rand Paul as VP due to his manic and disloyal campaigning thus far] It seems Cruz has probably hired…

— America Is NOT “A Democracy” — STOP SAYING THAT!!!

People… Why do you insist on calling America a “Democracy?”   It is NOT NOW, NOR EVER HAS BEEN! The United States is a Representative Constitutional Republic. That means that we (1) vote for our representatives,  (2) have a Constitution, and we (3) are a Republic. Representatives “REPRESENT” the people that vote for them.  Representatives ARE…

— Net Neutrality — The “Governet” Is Here

Haven’t you felt it? Like you couldn’t do anything you wanted to do on the internet?  That you couldn’t say what you wanted to say?  ‘Or that you couldn’t post the pictures you wanted?  You couldn’t find a video you wanted to see?  That you couldn’t engage in whatever topic you typed in to the…

— Airbus A350 XWB Formation Flight — Damn Impressive

Since we are “Boeing Country” here in the US, most of us didn’t really get to see this video from December 2014 entitled “Family Flight”, but it is impressive.  Not only is it a great propaganda coup for Airbus (they have done it for other platforms).  The videography is spectacular.   It’s kinda like a Red-Bull…
